Let's get a little philosophical.

To you, what is freedom?

The destruction of the state and reorganization under non-hierarchial confederates where automation handles most labor.

To invade your safe space and laugh about it.


Okay Genghis.

It is what men whose hearts are brave yearn for.

Only dogs are free. They can piss or screw in public and no one cares!

Leash laws, licensing laws, et al everywhere says otherwise.

Nah, it's only 26 feet long. Of course, I've had it for 9 years. My second trip out I clipped a gas station pole, so there was a learning curve.  :)

Freedom is proclaiming this 

 

 

is superior to this

 

 

then coming to my senses and reversing.

 

...Only now I'm not sure anymore.

Freedom is many things and will mean different things to people, I can understand some members think freedom in the year 2017 is an illusion

 

But its real and we should not take it granted. I would argue anyone living in countries that are Democracies should absolutely understand they live in a fee society...for example

 

  • You have freedom  to vote for who you want
  • You have free media
  • You can criticize your government
  • You have freedom of religion
  • Your  human rights are enshrined and protected legally through constitutions 

The list goes on and on 

 

Seriously, how can most of us  on this forum not agree we live in free societies ?

Oh Bruce, you made that one too easy. Are you truly free if your opinion and your values aren't really your own?

How do you define   " my opinions and values aren't your own " 

 

I support laws and numerous  government  institutions, I agree with paying tax, I support order and societal campaigns to improve the living conditions of citizens 

 

So Im unsure how my views aren't my own?

Freedom is being able to read old Garfield comics when I want to.
